    I have a Supercard MiniSD, and I was wondering if it is possible to back-up my old GBC cartridge's save? The battery is getting old, and I want to play them on my PC...

    I don't think it's possible with a supercard, or any GBA cart.

    the only way I know of is if you have a GBC flashcart + linker, you connect the linker to your commercial GBC game, and it can read the save off.

    Possibly, you could write some homebrew to do it on a GBC flashcart, but what would be the point? if you have a GBC flashcart you'd need a linker, might as well use the linker.

    Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure you cannot do something like load the supercard, hotswap with GBC game, because GBA carts and GBC carts are different voltage, and it needs to be set on bootup of the GBA.
